What would Christmas be without fudge? We have been making this recipe with my Mom ever since I can remember. It comes right from the back of the marshmallow creme package. It is chocolaty, creamy, delicious, and pretty easy. We usually make some with nuts and some without, just to please everyone. All of the ingredients are really simple and it makes 3 lbs. Now the only problem will be getting it out of the house before you eat it all!
3 cups sugar
3/4 cup margarine (we usually use real butter)
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 12-oz. (340 g) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 7-oz. (198 g) jar Kraft Marshmallow creme
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Traditional method:Combine sugar, margarine and milk in heavy 2-1/2 quart saucepan; bring to full rolling bail, stirring constantly. Continue boiling 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring. Remove from heat, stir in chocolate till melted. Add marshmallow creme, nuts & vanilla beat till blended. Pour into greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Let cool and cut into 1-inch squares.
